John Kilpatrick, one of our own Sterling yogis and a 31-year Army reservist, is the founder of the program. The goal of Veterans Recovery Resources is to improve veteran well-being by removing barriers to mental health care.
John is passionate about providing a unique recovery program for veterans and their families suffering from substance abuse, PTSD and other mental health issues.
The Gulf Coast is home to 5 million veterans, the second largest concentration in the entire country. In Southwest Alabama alone, there are more than 64,000 veterans. Of those brave men and women, 7,000 are in immediate need of help.
Local resources are currently very limited, but John is creating a program that truly will benefit each and every returning service member who needs and deserves assistance and care.
To help support this very worthy cause, please join us Monday, Aug. 21 at 5:15 p.m. for the Sterling 60 class. Sprite Rose Wood will lead the class in honor of our military veteran community and in support of Veterans Recovery Resources.
Tax-deductible donations will be accepted and 100 percent of the monies raised will be given to this much-needed program. Your donations will make an immediate difference. We look forward to seeing you then!
